Hmmm...sounds like a smooth,rich ale. The hop presence has to be gone by then though. Just bittering at that point.

And dry hops? Would those have been included in the year long secondary or added after secondary, immediately prior to shipping and serving?

I ask because some of these beers (obviously) take many months if not years of aging before they are really suitable for drinking. Is there anyway of knowing how old the beers are when he includes the tasting notes?

Honestly, using pils in beer like this isn't the end of the world, given all that it has going on. However, I do think the MO or continental pale basemalt will probably be better tasting and closer to what they were originally using than pils alone.

It depends. Often a few weeks, but sometimes longer.

You'd really need to ask Kristen.

Ron, do you know when dry hops would have been added to an early 1800s IPA? Would fresh hops added before the year long secondary or did they add them in the cask before shipping and serving? The book wasn't clear on that.

By this time they knew that hops kept beer "fresh", so I would imagine that they were dry hopped in the secondary and dry hopped again when prepared for shipping (considering it took a really long time to travel to India with having to go around Africa).
